These cycle touring essentials are items I always take on a bike tour, whether it’s a for a weekend, a week, month, or even a year. This isn’t your usual gear list of technical cycling stuff. More it’s some of the personal items I take with me on a tour that make my life easier. Each one of these items comes in useful, and I’d never leave home without them when starting a bicycle tour!
